About the property

3 Bed 3 Bath Mountain View, Private Hot Tub, Walk To Slopes!

Our Park Forest Luxury Chalet is ideal for those seeking a private home in a quiet setting with excellent accessibility to the ski slopes and the town of Breckenridge! This 3 bedroom/3 bath home comes with its own private hot tub and all the amenities of home. It is the brightest unit with an updated remodeled kitchen, new furnishings, original artwork, tile, carpet and hardwood floors throughout.

The house is equipped with several flat screen tv's and free high speed internet via wifi. Bring your computer or tablet and don't forget to download the SONOS App to operate the wireless speaker system where you can stream your own playlist in the living room! The 2 car garage has ample room to store your skis and snowboards with ski racks on the wall. We also have a boot warmer to dry out those boots for the next day.

Location – This property is conveniently located off Ski Hill Road in Park Forest Estates near the base of Peak 8. If there isn't too much snow, you can walk through the back yard and across the street to the free shuttle at the Gold Camp Condominiums to go to town or a two block walk to the base of Peak 8! Or, do it like I do and have someone drop you at the gondola at Peak 8!

The Breckenridge Nordic Center, with numerous groomed cross country and snowshoeing ski trails is an easy walk just across One Ski Hill Road. Or, you can walk approximately 3 blocks (5 to 10 minutes) to and from Four O'Clock ski run where you can ski down to the Snow Flake lift – when conditions permit (see satellite overview in photos).

Amenities - The interior of the house features vaulted ceilings that highlight the master bedroom, living room and kitchen area. The entire house is very bright and sunny. The well-equipped modern kitchen has oak cabinetry, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and a coffee machine. The spacious living room is the ideal spot to relax and hang out with a queen size pull out sofa sleeper. Or go down to the family room and watch a movie on the large flat screen TV or listen to music on the SONOS stereo with your group. Outside the back is the deck with the private hot tub and gas grill for your enjoyment to relax after a fun day on the mountain.

Upstairs is the Master bedroom with vaulted ceilings, walk in closet and double sinked vanity. There is a shower and soaking tub for those days when you hit the slopes hard! Enjoy a king size bed and views of the surrounding mountains through the evergreens.

About Doug Benson

Hi, We are Doug and Catherine Benson. We purchased our place in Park Forest Estates at the end of 2013, but did not list it to rent until 2016. We live in Denver and have three kids that all love to snowboard. We spend time here in the mountains and also in the Bahamas! You can see our place there at VRBO 439530 and VRBO 629128.

Doug Benson purchased this chalet in 2013

Why Doug Benson chose Park Forest Estates

I spent a lot of time looking at places throughout the Breckenridge area. The two things to consider is whether you want to be in town or on the mountain. After many trips, we decided it is better to be on the mountain. We chose Park Forest for several reasons. First is proximity to the mountain. It is a great location either in winter or summer as we are so close to the Nordic Center. We also love the fact that even though technically a townhome, this home shares no walls in common, so it is very private and quiet.

What makes this chalet unique

I think Park Forest is the perfect location. Within Park Forest I think we have the best location as you can walk out the back door and through the parking lot to the shuttle stop. From there it is one stop to the base and the gondola where you can either go up the mountain or down into town. Once you arrive you can get around without a vehicle.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Location, hot hot tub, and beds were all great. The only complaint was that the pillows were hard as rocks.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5, including 3 sons in their 20's, really enjoyed the house. There was plenty of room for everyone and having a full kitchen, 3 bathrooms and two separate living rooms was exactly what we needed. The house was just a few minutes drive from the gondola on the mountain and having a garage was a wonderful addition. The boys really enjoyed the hot tub on the deck after their long days on the mountain. I would recommend this house and we will look for an opportunity to visit again. Breck is one of the best ski-towns we have ever been to for happy hour, dinner and loads of shopping!

Perfect Christmas Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Very well-kept and conveniently located to Breckenridge Ski Resort, downtown Breckenridge and the Nordic Center. The hot tub was a great bonus after a long day on the slopes. We couldn’t have been more pleased with our stay.

Great location! Great stay!

  • 4 of 5

6 of us stayed in Breck at the Park forest estates and the location is fantastic. The only real complaint is that the hot tub had waaay to much chlorine. Our group could not even is in the hot tub without coughing and sneezing because of the chemicals.

Owner's Response: Steve, I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. I e-mailed out hot tub company that services the hot tub each week. My sincere apologies for the chlorine...nothing like a nice hot tub after a hard day skiing! Hope to see you soon! Cheers, Doug

Wonderful Snowy Christmas!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was so great! We visited for the week of Christmas and the house couldn't have been more perfect. The amenities were great, house was fully furnished with all our needs and the amount of space was perfect for our family. We had 6 adults and two little kids running about and never felt cramped. Doug was very responsive to any needs the whole time and actually provided his cell phone number if we needed anything while we were there. We will definitely recommend to family and friends and visit again.
